Many thanks to everyone who sent through proposals — we’ll be in touch very soon!
1. 2017 exhibition and project proposals: RM is happy to accept proposals from artists and curators, individuals and groups, wanting to to exhibit or a create a project with us. We are also very interested in receiving proposals for workshops, events, publications, or off-site projects. All proposals should include visual or audio material in a form that can be easily viewed by our five directors. We recommend that you include a written outline of your work, with a background of the participants, your practice, an overview of what you intend to present at RM, as well as your contact details. For our 2017 programme we have decided to extend the exhibition period to four weeks.
2. Archive Residency proposals: The archive room residency aims to provide space for larger long-form projects that are not necessarily limited by the traditional constraints of exhibition making. The three month residency, which takes place in our archive room, is designed to allow for practices, research, and project outcomes requiring time and space to develop. RM is interested in supporting a wide range of research modes and practices. Some examples of research projects include: a collaborative mapping project, a dynamic studio, an ongoing research and writing project, a kitchen, a radio station etc. RM will provide a stipend and support from our team of co-directors during the project’s development, as well as studio space. Successful applicants will be aware of RM opening times and events throughout the 12 weeks. We ask that the archive room can still operate in some dimension as a functional space, whereby the archive is accessible and there is space for other research to occur. We ask that an outcome or research is shared with the public or RM team at some point during the residency. This could take many forms including (but not limited to): talks, workshops, screenings, kai kōrero, dance parties, walks, publications/production of texts, image making/sharing… We ask that a permanent contribution is made to the RM archive. All proposals should include visual or audio material in a form that can be easily viewed by our five directors. We recommend that you include a written outline of your work, with a background of the participants, your practice, and an overview of what you are hoping to achieve over this period, as well as your contact details.
3. Open Summer Studio expressions of interest: Over the summer weeks, while RM takes a break from hosting exhibitions, the gallery space will instead become a studio space shared between five practitioners. The space will be available from 9 January until 27 February. The expression of interest will preferably include images of your current work, a short text about what you are hoping to achieve over this period, as well as your contact details.
